Inspiring Tales Of Those Who Changed The World
Eternity Through The
Rearview Mirror by
Annette Hubbell is an inspiring book of seventeen tales of ordinary men and
women who lived extraordinary lives for Jesus and changed their worlds. “Have a
vision, change the world” said Corrie ten Boom. Where we see injustices we need
to stand up and declare that it is wrong.
The book is full of names that I have heard of.
Why? Because they fought with faith to right the wrongs. There are many who
stood against slavery including Abraham Lincoln. Sojourner Truth felt invisible
until her Mama told her “There is a God who hears and sees you.” God sees and
hears all and He sees you.
I think one of the saddest quotes was “Don’t
you know that reading is for white folks?” by Mary McLeod Bethune. She received
no schooling until ages eleven but went on to educate other poor folks.
The Indomitable Spirit
Until Then by Gail Kittleson is a Christian
historical novel covering the war years 1943-1945. It is an epic read that will
break your heart.
Clearly Gail Kittleson has thoroughly
researched her topic both on the home front and on the continent as a medical
army camp moves around tending the wounded. Both locations faced their own
hardships as they witness death and destruction.
Life in war torn London is viewed through the
eyes of a policeman. He witnesses horrors that he cannot ‘unsee’ and is haunted
Likewise there are horrors seen on the
continent through the eyes of the nurses. Camaraderie helps them to cope with
the horrors of war. At times they laugh because otherwise they would cry. I
must admit I chuckled in horror at the latrine incident.
Redemption by Ione Joy is an End Times novel
and the second book in The Armoire series. I recommend reading book one first.
Redemption is a cautionary tale set after the
Rapture (in book one). It sees the fulfilment of prophecies in Revelation. The
world is divided into those who stand for Jesus and those who are for the
Beast. The Beast believes that he can defeat the world but we know that Jesus
has the victory.
there is a job to be done. Only when God’s plans are completed can we move on. God
commands His angels to protect His children. When we know God we can have peace
and hope in the midst of our trials.
by Connor Royce is a Christian romance that will delight the reader. It is set
in Mexico and America with a real cosmopolitan feel to it.
The novel is about awakenings in God and
prodigals returning. “She wanted to pray like she had as a child, when God was
as easy to talk to as her Papa.” When we have known God, if we drift away, we
are still anchored to Him and it feels as if something is missing until we
return to Him. It may surprise us to know that God misses us too. “How strange…
that God could miss her.” God awaits our return.
We all need people who will help us in our
Christian walk. We may need encouragement to keep walking faithfully. The
greatest gift a new Christian can receive is a Bible as then we can read God’s
word for ourselves. “Her spirit had awakened and it was hungry.”
